Philip Treacy Designs Collection for Giffords Circus 2015 Tour
Apr. 17, 2015
Philip Treacy will design 12 bespoke pieces for the Giffords Circus 2015 summer tour entitled Moon Songs. Headwear by the internationally famed milliner is going to form part of the costumes for the 12 members of the company’s Ethiopian troupe.
Giffords Circus founder Nell Gifford visited Philip’s London studio along with creative designer Lindsay Pugh and Director Cal McCrystal. Nell said: “We are privileged to be working with Philip and thrilled to announce our collaboration. I’ve been an admirer of his work for many years and we are very excited to see him bring his touch to Moon Songs.”
Philip said: “There is a real synergy between my work and that of Giffords Circus: we both pride ourselves on our expert craftsmanship, originality and theatricality. I’m really looking forward to working on a new challenge and creating something unique for Moon Songs. I love when hats make your heart beat faster and on each hat I spend as much time as it requires to become extraordinary. Combined with Lindsay’s stunning costumes and Nell’s vision, Moon Songs promises to be a phenomenal show.”
